Irreversible work and inner friction in quantum thermodynamic processes.

- F. Plastina, A. Alecce, +5 authors R. Zambrini
- Physics, MedicinePhysical review letters
- 13 July 2014

TLDR

Spontaneous synchronization and quantum correlation dynamics of open spin systems

- G. Giorgi, F. Plastina, G. Francica, R. Zambrini
- Physics
- 8 May 2013

We discuss the emergence of spontaneous synchronization for an open spin-pair system interacting only via a common environment. Under suitable conditions, and even in the presence of detuning between… Expand

TLDR

Quantum Coherence and Ergotropy.

TLDR

Universal scaling for the quantum Ising chain with a classical impurity

- T. Apollaro, G. Francica, D. Giuliano, G. Falcone, G. Palma, F. Plastina
- Physics
- 30 October 2017

We study finite size scaling for the magnetic observables of an impurity residing at the endpoint of an open quantum Ising chain in a transverse magnetic field, realized by locally rescaling the… Expand

Work statistics, irreversible heat and correlations build-up in joining two spin chains

- T. Apollaro, G. Francica, M. Paternostro, M. Campisi
- Physics
- 3 June 2014

We investigate the influences of quantum many-body effects, such as criticality and the existence of factorisation fields, in the thermodynamic cost of establishing a bonding link between two… Expand

Daemonic ergotropy: enhanced work extraction from quantum correlations

- G. Francica, J. Goold, F. Plastina, M. Paternostro
- Physics
- 30 July 2016

We investigate how the presence of quantum correlations can influence work extraction in closed quantum systems, establishing a new link between the field of quantum non-equilibrium thermodynamics… Expand

The role of coherence in the non-equilibrium thermodynamics of quantum systems

- G. Francica, J. Goold, F. Plastina
- 2018

Exploiting the relative entropy of coherence, we isolate the coherent contribution in the energetics of a driven non-equilibrium quantum system. We prove that a division of the irreversible work can… Expand

Local quench, Majorana zero modes, and disturbance propagation in the Ising chain

- G. Francica, T. Apollaro, N. L. Gullo, F. Plastina
- Physics
- 8 October 2016

We study the generation and propagation of local perturbations in a quantum many-body spin system. In particular, we study the Ising model in transverse field in the presence of a local field defect… Expand

Topological superconducting phases and Josephson effect in curved superconductors with time reversal invariance

- G. Francica, M. Cuoco, P. Gentile
- Physics
- 4 March 2020

We consider a Rashba spin-orbit coupled nanowire with anisotropic spin-singlet superconducting pairing and time-reversal-invariant symmetry. We explore the evolution of the topological… Expand
